Just a few things...
Thank you to everyone who has sent donations for the Susan Komen 3-day Walk for the Cure. T-shirts will be shipped this week! The fundraiser at Solar Tan will last until the end of March for anyone who would still like to get a t-shirt.
For those of you that would like to donate directly to the walk here's what you need to do:
Go to www.the3day.org, click on Donate, go to search for a participant and type in Pam Fortener (team name is Fort's Yayas for Tatas), from there you can click on Donate to Pam.
On a side note...when Pam and Melissa were on their way to Atlanta for the walk in 2007 Pam tried to let Melissa know that it was okay if she needed to rest or take breaks...Fort said, "We're gonna finish this race on bloody knuckles if we have to!" Pam says she will finish this next race the same way if she has to. Words to live by...
Also, here is some info on another fundraiser for the walk. Everyone is welcome. Please attend if you can...should be lots of fun!
